with the soviet union, so states like mississippi, states like georgia, texas, florida, southern california, arizona and north carolina are all being transformed in the post-world war ii period by this historic shift in population. just think about it. this period from 1964 to 2008 can be thought of this kind of the period of sunbelt dominance in the american presidential history. if you think about it, every president elected from 1964 to 2008 comes from a state of the sunbelt. lyndon johnson from texas, richard nixon from california, gerald ford was not even elected vice president. he was from michigan. jimmy carter from georgia, ronald reagan from california, the first george bush from texas and bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 is in some ways a watershed election it's in being the four-year period of sunbelt dominance. there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, they came out of the sunbelt and they tended to have a conservative back to them. they tended to be oriented around history of strong national defense, of an opposition

, and the wealthiest, biggest producing states, california, new york, texas, and florida, are going to be the biggest revenue losers because of that money being taken from them and sent to washington. and you have a state like california where the governor is trying to engineer a tax increase on top of that. how this cannot have a depresssive effect on the economy is hard to see. >> i think we also know the super wealthy know how to work the tax system. so unless there's fundamental tax reform that gets rid of a lot of the loopholes and tax advantages, someone who is very wealthy can use, you're not going to collect those revenues. more of the same with basically middle income class people getting hit. >> which of the tax increases won't take place if mitt romney is elected? >> romney said he doesn't want the big hikes on income or investment. >> going to repeal obamacare. >> also saying he wants tax reform to bring down the corporate rate to something roughly competitive with the world. i think the hope is that you would probably see if romney is elected, a postponement of the big fiscal decisions.
